The objectives of this study are to establish microsatellite loci for the Mongolian gerbil based on mouse microsatellite DNA sequences and to investigate genetic variation in the laboratory gerbil (Capital Medical University, CMU) and 2 wild gerbil populations (from Yin Chuan city [YIN] and the Hohehot Municipality [HOH]). In total, 536 mouse microsatellite(More)
To precisely determine the type and status of cells is an important prerequisite for basic researches and regenerative medicine involving stem cells or differentiated cells. However, the traditional destructive cell status examination methods have many limitations, mainly due to the heterogeneity of cells under the reprogramming or(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, non-motile, rod-shaped, aerobic bacterium, designated strain YLT18T, was isolated from mountain cliff soil of Enshi Grand Canyon in China. The major menaquinone was menaquinone 7 (MK-7) and the predominant fatty acids (>5 %) were iso-C15 : 0, C16 : 1ω5c, iso-C17 : 0 3-OH, summed feature 3 (C16 : 1ω7c/iso-C15 : 0 2-OH) and iso-C15 : 0(More)
Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) are considered as one of the most promising seed cell sources in regenerative medicine. Now hiPSC-based clinical trials are underway. To ensure clinical safety, cells used in clinical trials or therapies should be generated under GMP conditions, and with Xeno-free culture media to avoid possible side effects(More)
A highly efficient cardiac differentiation from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) is achievable using existing methods, especially with the standard B27 induction system. However, bovine serum albumin (BSA), one of the essential ingredients in B27, may pose significant complications for clinical studies owing to its animal origin and potential risks of(More)
A novel Gram-stain-negative, strictly aerobic, non-motile, rod-shaped, capsule-forming bacterium, designated strain YLT33T, that formed orange-red colonies was isolated from mountain cliff soil from Enshi Grand Canyon, southwest China. Growth occurred at 4-35 °C (optimum 28 °C) and at pH 6.0-10.0 (optimum 7.0). It showed maximum (99.3 %) 16S rRNA gene(More)
BACKGROUND Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element in living systems. Microorganisms play a pivotal role in the selenium cycle both in life and in environment. Different bacterial strains are able to reduce Se(IV) (selenite) and (or) Se(VI) (selenate) to less toxic Se(0) with the formation of Se nanoparticles (SeNPs). The biogenic SeNPs have exhibited(More)
A Gram-stain-negative, light pink, non-motile, rod-shaped, aerobic bacterium, designated strain XNV015T, was isolated from soil of a vanadium mine. Phylogenetic analyses based on 16S rRNA gene sequences indicated that it belongs to the genus Pedobacter and was closely related to Pedobacter suwonensis DSM 18130T (96.93 % sequence similarity), Pedobacter(More)
